Chenille Map Italian woven tapestry shows a gorgeous world map in gorgeous tones. Here we see a 17th century style world map where the land masses of the world are depicted, with Australia incomplete, based on the 1690 work of Henry Hondius (1573-1650), a Dutch cartographer and publisher. The map itself is decorated in its edges by mythological scenes from Greek and Roman mythology. As such, cartographers were considered artists as much as they were scientific in their rendition of maps to as high as accuracy as they could, based on nautical measurements from explorers. This tapestry is woven in luxurious chenille, and has a most beautiful use of colors. Hailing from the Dutch golden age, Hondius produced works in an era where science, economics, and art all flourished.
